Being skinny is not just about looking good.  But about truly being healthy.  About having the life you want, with the energy you need to create your dreams.  I completely agree with loving the body you are in; however, you also need to consider the health implications that being overweight is doing to your body and your longevity.

State of Obesity website states in their fast facts,, that five states have an adult obesity rate of 35% or higher.  This is a trend that individuals should look at and consider it on an individual level.  When you view it on such a large scale it doesn’t really hit home.  As if this isn’t about me, they are talking about someone else.  I challenge you to take an inventory of your life and your health.

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

  • Am I at a healthy weight?
  • What is my BMI?
  • What is my eating protocol like?
  • How long have I been putting this off?
  • Do I have family members that care about me and would support me?

Only you know what your true health picture looks like.  If you have been putting this off more than a year, ask yourself when is the time to truly make change?  Time is something we never get back.  I put off making a permanent change for 23 years.  That is a lot of time wasted.  I could have accomplished so much more if I would have only acted 23 years ago.  I, however, do not beat myself up over this.  I am taking this information and helping as many people as I can with the information and experience I have.

Now take a moment and fast forward a year from now, five years from now, where do you truly want to be when it comes to your health.  Below is a snippet of consequences of obesity and health consequences.   I don not know where this compliation came from other than off of Facebook.  If you want to research the accuaracy of the list I encouarge you to do so.
